Marijuana use is currently a hot topic in the United States. Though Pennsylvania has not yet followed suit, a number of states have approved the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. One western state recently approved use of the drug for both medicinal and non-medicinal use. That action has prompted some to question how passage of the Amendment will affect child custody litigation within the state.
Pennsylvania readers likely recall the football exploits of Deion Sanders, the former NFL star who is also enshrined in the Hall of Fame. He and his wife Pilar have been fighting through divorce proceedings to end their 13 year marriage. While battles over a prenuptial agreement executed in 1998 continue unabated, the latest skirmish was about child support.
A record of sorts has reportedly been set by a man for owing more child support than any other individual in the country. Pennsylvania readers may be interested in following the case, which recently took a turn for the worse for the accused man when he was arrested by federal authorities after six years away from the country. It is a federal crime to leave the United States for the purpose of avoiding the payment of child support.
